Jesus gave me the strength to do it all!
KIMBERLY DID SCHOOLWORK
ALL NIGHT LONG FRIDAY NIGHT...
AND FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL AT 7:45 A.M.
before we left for her graduation at 10:45!!!!
~WAY TO GO, KIMBERLY!!!~
JESUS AND YOU DID IT!!!
~The night before Kimberly's graduation, Elijah fell off his new bike and split his chin open. :-(
This Mother is wishing that we could lead a LESS-ADVENTUROUS LIFE!!! :-) ~
~Kimberly graduated with Christian Home Educators of Ohio!~
Phillip and I got to give Kimberly her diploma personally! ~
Each graduate would leave the graduation and shine their light for good or for bad.~
This is what we wrote about Kimberly.
~Kimberly, the oldest of six, was saved at three and continues to serve God. Kimberly and her family were missionaries to Argentina two years and Colombia eight years and have Colombian residency. She has been to eleven countries and is fluent in Spanish.
She plays violin and piano. She's Mommy's right hand lady and a great example to her siblings. She loves music, languages, missions, her family, others, and God.~
Here's Kimberly as a baby...~
~There were about 45 graduates or so!~
U. Daryl and A. Laura, Brittany, Darla, and Bryan,
and U. Michael and A. Beth, Isaiah, Sophia, Jeremiah, Joshua, and baby Ava join us for Kimberly's graduation!!!!~
Dad and Mom D. only had 2 sons, but they have 13 Grandchildren...including our baby Mercy in Heaven.~
We are sooooo PLEASED with Kimberly and her accomplishment!!
When you are the oldest of 6 children, you went on 8 months of deputation while doing 1st grade, moved to Costa Rica and lived there a year while doing 2nd grade...(while your parents went to school to learn Spanish, and you had a Spanish-speaking Christian baby sitter/teacher who taught you Spanish) moved to Colombia and did 3rd grade, and then lived and worked for Jesus in Colombia, and then in Argentina and traveled back and forth between Colombia, Argentina, and the U.S. for deputation and for Mommy to have a new baby (3 new babies over the years), took violin and piano classes in Colombia and Argentina, learned 3 new cultures during that time, plus Spanish and taking some Chinese classes as well...IT IS QUITE AN ACCOMPLISHMENT THAT SHE IS DONE WITH HIGH SCHOOL! ~
It was decent prices and large servings, so we ate lots of chips and salsa and shared 4 plates between our family! :-)~
Prayers still needed...that I will have strength, and that we can get everything done for Kimberly's graduation party Friday night!
PLEASE PRAY it doesn't rain!!!!
